Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting (MRF) permits simultaneous quantitative mapping of multiple MR parameters. We propose a framework for optimizing the sequence parameters of an inversion recovery prepared spoiled gradient echo (IR spoiled-GRE) based MRF sequence, with interior-point (IP) method and particle-swarm optimization (PSO). By using an designed exponential cost function to maximize the discrimination between tissue types, with combined sinusoidal wave functions as input to generate sequence parameters, substantial improvement of accuracy for T1 and T2* quantification can be achieved. Simultaneous high accuracy of T1 and T2* estimations can be achieved within 0.7s for SNR≥5; within 0.5s for SNR≥10.
